Cute As A Bug

I love to stitch flowers......but I also love to stitch butterflies. The day Monica's hand spun thread arrived, a pale yellow butterfly was flitting in and out of the flower beds. I thought to myself....that needs to be stitched!
The color of this thread is called peach....
as you can see the hints of pink throughout the yellow. I stitched this in closed buttonhole stitch. Visit Monica at Just Ducky bloghttp://justducky48.blogspot.com/


While I was out walking the grounds, I spotted this cute little bug! I thought to myself.....he needs to be stitched! What are your favorite kinds of bugs? Butterflies...lady bugs...bees? I cant wait to hear.

Kathleen, The butterfly is very lovely! It is so fun to send you thread and see what you do with it! I think you will have to be my official tester as I get new colors!!!

I love butterflies! I live in Mariposa County. In spanish Mariposa means butterfly. Right now the bees are coming out as I have beautiful blooms on my rosemary bushes.

The butterfly is so pretty. I love seeing your work. I've always been partial to butterflies, anyway. I like how their wings look like stained glass. I think of them as God painting them.

Thanks for sharing.
